Hey super geeks (how i love you so)

I have a very strange problem with my new 6600gt Sli setup. For some reason i seem to have a locked maximum resolution of 1152x864 pixels in most games and cannot get any higher than this.

I used to be able to run Rome Total War at 1280x1024 with my old Radeon 9800 pro but this option has now dissapeared. It is the same story on Battlefield 2 and Fable.

Any idea why this might be happening. I would expect an Sli setup to at least give the option of higher resses like 1600x1200 WTF is going on???

What drivers are you using? Try the 81.85s (http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1223)

Also make sure you have the bios and drivers up to date for your mobo.

What type of monitor and what size is it ?

...19" TFT. Runs at 1280 resolution as a maximum

Drivers are all updated to latest versions - i had to get latest forceware to run multi-manufacturer gfx cards in Sli

The wierd thing is RTW used to run at max resolution with my 9800 pro!?!?

Just a thought, have you installed the monitor drivers ?

Battlefield 2 has never supported 1280x1024 by default, you have to set it in the commandline like ...BF2.exe" +menu 1 +fullscreen 1 +szx 1280 +szy 1024

This goes for the Radeons too.

My recommendation also is to try installing the monitor drivers.
